grenfell to ricardo1
Spring G. Saturday [30 Sept. 1815]
My dear Sir
Another Letter from the “Old Proprietor” in yesterday’s Press2 has just attracted my Notice—and having obtained two of the Papers I inclose you one to add to your Collection. He gives I think a very correct Report of what passed—except in converting Mr. Thornton into the Secretary.
I am just starting for Taplow—to return here on Monday.
Ever truly yours
Since I wrote what is within I have yours of yesterday from Cheltenham. You will have found on your Return, 3 Covers from me of Thursday.3 I have referred to the House of Commons Papers you allude to—What was the voluntary Subscription of 200000?4

[3 ]28 September (letter 124; cp. its second paragraph).
[4 ]See above, IV, 119. The £200,000 were a voluntary contribution of the Bank of England for the defence of the country in 1798. (See A. Allardyce, A Second Address to the Proprietors of Bank of England Stock, 1801, p. 8.)
